TD Summer Reading Club:

td-srd-2018

Feed Your Passions! Join the TD Summer Reading Club @ the Callander Public Library this summer.  Starting Tuesday, July 3 until August 26, children ages 2-12 will participate in fun games, activities and crafts to encourage summer reading.  Research has shown that children who don’t read during the summer months read at a lower level when they return to school in the fall - this is called the ‘Summer Slide’. The TD Summer Reading Club is designed to keep kids reading all summer and to introduce them to new and interesting books to encourage a lifelong love of reading!
 

Ages 2-5 Wednesdays 10:30am-11:30am 
Ages 6-8 Tuesdays 10:00am-12:00am
Ages 9-12 Thursdays 10:00am-12:00am

No registration required!
